Abstract: The current work focused on how ethnic stereotypes manifest themselves in language. The aim of our research was to investigate whether the Linguistic Category Model (LCM) is applicable to German teachers' language. More precisely, we investigated whether the categories proposed by Semin and Fiedler (1988) and mostly tested in the English-speaking world are applicable to German teachers' language and whether the pattern of Linguistic Intergroup Bias is evident in teachers' language. The analyses of two samples including in- and pre-service teachers (Study 1: N = 124, 76.6% female; Study 2: N = 104, 67.6% female) revealed difficulties in applying the LCM to German teachers' language. Further, neither of the two conducted studies found patterns of Linguistic Intergroup Bias in teachers’ language. We attribute this to a mismatch between the LCM and the German language and discuss the difficulties and limitations of applying the category system to other languages.
